Add "Best MPG" to car lists

I would like to see "Best MPG" listed for vehicles in the browse Make/ Model/ Year listing. Maybe "Average Best MPG" at the Make/ Model level. This would help users quickly see how vehicles are doing in relation to their EPA Highway rating. In order to see this information now, a user must view each individual vehicle page. For example, 2002-6 Mini Cooper S has an EPA HWY of 34. I think the "Best MPG" I have seen was 32.

Thanks for the suggestion. That's something we can think about, but someone's best tank is always going to be an outlier by definition. I'm not sure it's something we should surface in the general browse views because they aren't a good indication of the fuel economy people will get in reality.

Would be great to see browse by MPG, when I'm next looking for a car, this will figure highly in my calculation.

A simple average (rather than a max) by (car model & fuel type & transmission type) would not suffer from the outlier problem unless the sample size was small.
